Zoe Saldana and Josh Hutcherson were two of several celebrities to star in the most recent PSA for It’s On Us, standing against sexual assault!
According to ELLE, the White House-sponsored campaign also featured John Cho, Matt McGorry, Minka Kelly, Jessica Szhor, Josh Hutcherson, Jesse Metcalfe, and the band Haim for the new PSA.
“Consent: If you don’t get it, you don’t get it,” Josh and Zoe say in the campaign video. Sex without consent: “It’s rape.” The PSA encourages everyone to end sexual assault, and take action before it even happens.
It’s On Us focuses on getting both men and women to take personal responsibility to stop sexual assault on college campuses. The White House has collaborated with several colleges, companies, and media outlets to promote the campaign. There is even an online pledge the public can take on the campaign’s website.
The first PSA for It’s On Us , released in September 2014, included Jon Hamm, Kerry Washington, Questlove, and Rose Byrne. I applaud all of these stars for being a part of the campaign, and speaking out on this issue in our country. I truly hope that the initiative continues to have impact, and teach people that sex without consent is absolutely wrong.
